Michael Cuba from the Timber Framers Guild  joined the Practical Preservation podcast to discuss:

  • Timber framing, of course, but also the differences between modern and repair/preservation techniques.  I had never thought about building timber frames in earthquake prone areas…they have the engineering figured out for that!
  • Learning using hand tools to insure you understand how wood works and reacts before using power tools – learn the classics first as your foundation.
  • How the timber framing can be reconstructed after the fire at Notre Dame
  • The Timber Framers Guild’s almost 40 year mission as a repository of timber frame knowledge and development of future talent
